Feeling under the weather? ❄️ Yes, there really ARE all-natural herbal alternatives to over-the-counter cold and flu medications and flu shots! ⬇️SEE BELOW
Chinese Medicine not only offers natural, holistic preventative and curative therapy, but customized treatment options for each and every individual (because why would one pill suit all...?) 🤷🏻♀️ —————————————————
➡️4 FORMULAS TO HAVE ON HAND DURING COLD & FLU SEASONS:
🍵 YU PING FENG SAN: If you’re the type that ALWAYS catches everything, start early in the season to give your immune system a boost - great flu shot alternative!
. 🍵 YIN QIAO SAN: If you have a cold with HEAT symptoms, like a sore throat, thirst, and yellow mucus, take this at first signs (places like Sprouts and Whole Foods all now carry this formula! ☺️)
🍵 SANG JU YIN: If you have heat signs, but also an accompanying COUGH, try this!
🍵 GUI ZI TANG: Best for cold/flu symptoms WITHOUT heat signs (e.g. no sore throat, no thirst, clear/white mucus), but possible accompanying stiff neck/body aches. .
📍Always keep your neck covered/warm when out in windy or cold weather — every acupuncturist lives by this! 📍 “Sweating out” a cold can be super beneficial — just be sure to avoid wind/a breeze/cold while your pores are open (this also means always toweling off immediately after working out, to avoid compromising your immune system!) —————————————————
✨As a culture, we have forgotten how to properly listen to and take care of our bodies - often until it is too late. Let’s re-learn what ancient wisdom traditions have known for centuries! —————————————————
